Why did no home directory or maildir folder get created when I created a new user? Was this because these files did not exist?

Maildir is created automatically when the first email for that account arrives.
To create the homedir when you create a user, take a look at
Code:
man useradd
, especially at the -d and -m switches.

I don't allow root to ssh in to my mail server. I log in with another admin ID and do sudo su. However, anytime I try to run the commands below I get and error about not being able to edit a read only file.

vi /etc/postfix/virtusertable

/etc/init.d/postfix restart


The only workaround I have found is to add my admin user ID to the root group or to allow root to ssh and run the commands. When lookink at the file system it shows root as the owner of the files I believe

This thraed is about ispconfig 3, at least the title says this, but in a ispconfig 3 system there is never a file /etc/postfix/virtusertable as the postfix setup is based on mysql tables. So which kind of setup and which software do you use?

I ended up using The_Perfect_Server_-_Ubuntu_Lucid_Lynx_(Ubuntu_10_04)_[ISPConfig_2] I started out with the ISPConfig3, but ran into issues. I was trying to provide more functionality. I only needed system users not virtual. I am only serveing up mail for one domain

Default restore data

Hello.

I'm new on this forum but I read from a long time the tutorials on your site.

I had a server with ubuntu 10.4 with ispconfig 3. I want to reinstall the entire site but right now I have a few sites installed with email addresses, etc.

How I can reinstall the server but I don't want to lose the data?

Anybody can help my with some ideas?

thank you.

The only method I can think of is make a backup of your data, then reinstall the system and restore your backup.

Everything run well except, when i was trying to access my ISPconfig address my DNS address e.g. http://server1.mydomain.sch.id:8080 it shows Error the page can't be displayed, while if I used http://192.168.0.100:8080 as the example in the tutorial it was OK.
